Indian minister again raised question regation rationale behind Pakistan holding talks with Kashmiri leaders.
The external affairs minister of India said this was not “too much” to accept from Pakistan that it should not interfere in the internal matters of India. However, when asked about future strategy in dealing with Pakistan, she said “there is no full stop in diplomacy, it’s always comas and semi colon. And after all this, people always move forward. There are no full stops in diplomatic journey.”
